How To Decorate Around A TV

I recently received an email from a reader who needed some advice on how to decorate around a TV. He wrote me saying, “I was wondering if you have plans to feature design inspiration, or how-to’s for televisions. In all these mid-century styled home, and modern style homes the TV is rarely featured, but it’s something people use everyday”. I TOTALLY agree! In most styled spaces, the TV somehow disappears. It is a hard accessory to decorate around, but it’s possible! Below are some simple tricks to decorate around your TV.

My most favorite way to decorate around a television is to include it in an art gallery (like seen above). Use a variety of sized frames but make sure that there are frames that are larger than the TV. Using black frames also allows the TV to disappear a bit. Also a college of photos and interesting prints remove the focus of the TV.

Placing your TV on a media console and displaying decorative items around it can create a more artistic approach.

If you don’t want to commit to hanging art a large selection of art on the wall, lean an arrangement around the TV. Also place books and ceramics near and around art collection for a cool vignette.

I think the number one key for decorating around a TV is keeping things clean and minimal. Also when the media console/buffet is awesome, you forget how big and shiny the TV is. TV’s will never go away so we might as well embrace them!
